Advocacy

Learn new advocacy skills and brush up on your legal advocacy knowledge with our range of interactive and educational CPD courses. Covering a number of different topics such as trial advocacy, plea making and tribunal advocacy, our seminars and online intensives provide advocacy skills training to suit lawyers at any stage of their career. As many barristers and solicitors find the 'performance' element of legal advocacy to be intimidating, advocacy training for lawyers can be essential in building confidence and ultimately achieving a positive outcome in court.
